Who said that women can’t wear suits? When Yves Saint Laurent introduced us to a classy Le Smoking tuxedo suit for women in 1966, it has been criticised, it has been rejected and it was not believed in. Nowadays, it has become one of the most elegant and iconic haute couture wear from red carpet to simply street style or even a day in the office! Today we are talking check prints and discussing one of the most wanted pant suits on the market – the Scottish tweed grey check suit.
For some of us it may be too smart, but the fashion business is definitely dictating otherwise. Why should we consider it a practical choice? There are two reasons: it is a statement look; it is unrevealingly sexy. Dress it up with a white shirt underneath and black heels ready for the red carpet or dress it down with a t-shirt and white sneakers. Let’s have a look into some styling details from up close and highlight the best street styles mastered so far.
Paris Street Style with the Fashion Editor @the.simone
Wearing a beautiful double brested jacket matched with a classic pair of straight trousers and a crisp white cotton shirt underneath for the utimate Parisienne look. For the accessories, the suit is being paired with a beautiful beige tote and a classic pair of black leather heels. Even better if you own a matching grey oversized coat – that will lead you to an all-in one power suit for winter days. To top it up, a beret is always a good idea when in Paris!
A great example for comparison and who-wore-it-better is a beautifully styled Parisienne look as worn by Blake Lively.
Like it casual? Throw on your favourite t-shirt and jump into a pair of white sneakers for that super chic street look suitable for all day every day!
